    Generic Armoured Girl... oh well, it's a beginning.

    Hi guys, finally I can show my first complete sculpture work.
    I have a little background in sculpting, made a few heads and a conversion fom an existing miniature, and it's the first time working with oven-hardening polymer clay (FIMO classic).
    I found the material really easy to use and both firm for mechanical details and loose for anatomical parts. Made 4 intermediate bakings and the final details in green epoxy putty.
    well hope you like it, I hope to begin some new works soon.
    Thanks in advance for avery comment you can give me, will surely be useful for future models

    ciaoz!

    (the image is a bit too heavy to attach inside the forum, should I try to make it attached?)

    Woah, I have a site too! (Crappy multilanguage option implemented, and a tad old in the drawing field)

    Can't really give any useful criticism...it is all-around good job. It is difficult to sculpt anything that small and I think you did excellent!

    Thanks a bunch, you're far too generous.
    I guess painting miniatures does help a bit in changing the perception of the details, but I had quite the hard times trying to make a good amount of detail, and messed up a lot of stuff.
    Glad you like it, though!

    50mm? 1/32? 1/35? That's hyuuge!

    I'm not so sure about the bow of the right leg and arm, and I think the pistol looks a little too rounded (bet it's the green stuff), but it's otherwise an excellent sculpt. The cloth and the armour integrate well and I'm particularly impressed by the face.

    ...which is only my opinion.

    Many thanks guys!
    @Vermis: thanks for your pointings, they'll be surely helpful. yeah I guess green stuff is not the best material for mechanical details, I'm looking around for other putties in these days, hope they'll serve me better hehe

    @docdee: the FIMO itself is pretty easy to smooth, it's sort like wax I think, but I used the metal dentist-like tools to carve the shape as best as I could, and then if necessary used a flat-headed silicon brush to polish surfaces and refine edges
